Poem: water


made a speech the last day of the strike

I made the Pakistanidean turn over in his house

the palace could not contain the strikers

the man’s politeness, arm around my shoulder

I walked with him by the jeweled

lake where a trust of sky

spotted the earth with vines

found words lying about

coiled amidst stones

nectar of cactus   air of the

unatomed desert

a place to walk   signs of unwritten

perhaps you can see them now


waterplacards them
